I don't have Chacos but LIVE in my Tevas - same idea, I guess!! One of the groups I hike with doesn't allow sandals on the trail [!!!] so I have to wear boots or trail runners but whenever I'm on my own, I hike in Tevas [unless there is snow, haha!] much of the time.
By the way, I've found that here in California, the majority of hikers are over 40, too - maybe even over 50. The reason is because younger people are very busy raising families, working hard and so forth - there are some hikes you can take kids or even babies but it does seem to cut into the type of hiking one can do. Then there are all the soccer games, ballet lessons and/or homework sessions to participate in so a lot of people don't get back into hiking [or don't take it up in the first place] until they become empty-nesters.
Enjoy Korean hiking - Chacos and all!
